Adam Driver Talks About Killing Han Solo And May Have Revealed Spoiler About Rey’s Parents
Adam Driver gave an interview with British GQ for their December issue and some interesting tidbits were revealed. The Star Wars actor who portrays Kylo Ren talked about killing Han Solo in The Force Awakens and also may have spilled a spoiler about Rey’s parents that Daisy Ridley said we will definitely discover in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Driver instantly became a despised figure after Kylo Ren thrust his red lightsaber into the chest of his very own father, Han Solo. Driver described watching the moment in Episode VII when his character committed patricide during the premiere. “When I watched the premiere, I felt sick to my stomach… Immediately, I thought I was going to puke,” Driver told GQ. “I was holding my wife [Joanne Tucker]’s hand, and she’s like, ‘You’re really cold. Are you OK?’ Because I just knew what was coming – I kill Harrison Ford – and I didn’t know how this audience of 2,000 people was going to respond to it, you know?”
Driver may have also dropped a major spoiler about Rey’s parents that Star Wars fans have been wondering since The Last Jedi debuted nearly two years ago. “You have, also, the hidden identity of this princess who’s hiding who she really is so she can survive and Kylo Ren and her hiding behind these artifices,” Driver said. GQ adds, “Apparently dropping a massive revelation about Rey’s royal origins.”
The “hidden princess” could very well mean his own mother Princess Leia of Alderaan, played by the late Carrie Fisher. But the 33-year-old actor may be referencing Rey, giving a clue to her parentage. That could mean that Princess Rey could be with a royal family such as the Organas, Palpatines or Skywalkers. Meaning Rey could be Kylo’s sister or maybe the daughter of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Duchess Satine Kryze of Mandalore.
The Star Wars Reddit posted a link to a Yahoo article from Japan where Daisy Ridley, the actress that plays Rey, hinted that The Last Jedi will reveal her character’s parentage. “About the relationship between Luke and Rey, among the fans the theory that two people are father and daughter is raised. Daisy, who said that the answer will be revealed in The Last Jedi,” the article says. Ridley adds, “Whatever the answer is, I hope everyone will enjoy that moment, I knew the answer from a few years ago but the story created by Rian Johnson is such a wonderful thing that it’s unpredictable and to be honest, I was very touched”
Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be released on December 15. Is it December 15th yet?
